I told him to stick it up his ass...sidways.

    I played about 15 hrs/wk of basketball in college. Guys get hit with a hard throw plenty of times when trying to save the ball from going out of bounds, often intentionally throwing it at the opponent so it's uncatchable.

    Played some organized sports in my youth (swimming and track primarily, a little baseball). Can't recall having a coach that didn't insult us from time to time to get our asses moving. Most were at least slightly homophobic.

    yeah that coach didn't look like he'd do to well if a couple of those guys decided to give him a "facial"

    Yeah, but it goes way beyond that. This is a poster who's claiming that ending racial segregation is the cause of our downfall as a nation. And yet not one conservative poster took him to task.

    Nah, conservatives don't have any problem with racism

    Getting yelled at is par for the course. Physical assault is not.

    Why? Didn't you accept his verbal and physical abuse as just part of the game?

    avoiding trollish posts is a common sense way to avoid getting docked points by the autocratic and unfair administration on this board, it does not constitute condoning the trollish posts.

    Oh but it was sooooo hurtful! Just kidding. Agreed, for the most part. And with further though I can't say with honesty that I wouldn't go after a coach I saw physically or verbally dressing down my grandchildren. But then that a part of the problem we've been talking about. I don't want my grandchildren to fall down, but I know that is part of learning to live in the world.

    Tell me, what tone do you see here? It's not a trick question either.
